A great day of racing at Flemington on Saturday has an American feel about it with The United States and The Quarterback attracting the most punter support according to sportsbet.com.au.
- The United States attracts more money than Vadamos and Scottish combined for Emirates Stakes.
- It’s an American theme at Flemington with The Quarterback best backed in the Darley Classic.
The online bookmaker has The United States as the $4.20 favourite to win the Emirates Stakes – narrowly ahead of Vadamos ($4.50) and Scottish ($5.00).
In the Darley Classic, The Quarterback is joined on the third line of betting at $6.50 with Fell Swoop but is the best backed runner in the race.
Our Boy Malachi heads betting at $5.00 ahead of Lankan Rupee ($6.00) in what’s a very open field.
“The interest behind next week’s US election must be spreading as the punters have come out in force for The United States and The Quarterback but both races are extremely tight affairs,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
